Proctoring and Integrity Settings
The proctoring or invigilation settings provide you with the tools to ensure integrity in remote exams.
In the final step of the exam scheduling process, you can enable proctoring (invigilation) to record activity on the student's computer like video, audio and web activity.
You can also enable lockdown and verification settings that will be applied to students when sitting their exams.
Note: The Proctoring and Integrity Settings that are displayed to users scheduling exams can be enabled and disabled globally by users who can manage your organization settings.
Using the "Recording options" you can specify the recording features that are enabled on the student's device.
- Record video – requires the student to have a webcam installed and records a stream from the webcam for the duration of the exam
- Record audio – requires the student to have a microphone installed and records the input from the microphone for the duration of the exam
- Record screen – captures and records the student's desktop for the duration of the exam
- Record web traffic – captures screenshots and the URLs of any sites visited during the exam
- Record room – when enabled, the record room option will use the video camera to record the student's exam taking environment. You must enable one of the following options:
- Record room at start – requires the student to take a scan of the room at the start of the exam
- Record room as required – requires the student to take a scan of the room at the start of the exam, and at any time suspicious activity is detected
You can disable features on the student's machine to ensure exam integrity.
